Anthropomorphizing animals over the years has been done to great comedic affect. Those dogs playing poker, for instance, and probably my favorite, the old Little Cesear’s ad from the 90s where some guy said he taught his dog to say “I love you.” These are all well and funny, but what about a comparison to Don Corleone in The Godfather, who severed a horse head and delivered it between the sheets of his enemy? “It’s not personal, Sonny. It’s strictly business.” Well, I bet that guy who got the horse head thought it was pretty personal.
Here’s what I came home to the other day, and keep in mind I’ve had other books sitting on the same table from where she grabbed this for most of her life.
I guess this is what I get for not putting her in the acknowledgments.
Next time it will say, “To Mavis, the fucknutty of them all.”
